Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi has insinuated that some governors of Peoples Democratic Party, a major opposition party in the country, fond of criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari in the public will clandestinely visit to beg him for forgiveness later.

Umahi who has been under intense political brickbat since his defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress was responding to verbal attacks by Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, who said that PDP made him (Umahi) what he is today.

The Governor told Arise TV said that some PDP Governors who speak against the Buhari government during the day, ‘go up and down at night’ begging.

He was quoted as saying ““And some of them [PDP Governors] speak rubbish in the day and in the night they’re caps in hands and they start going up and down. I don’t do like that. So Mr. President remains my boss, father and boss and I’ve no regret about that.”

The Ebonyi chief executive remarked that he had contributed so much in the making of PDP, serving as a peacemaker and negotiator, insisting that he made the party what it is today and not the other way around.

Wike had in one of his recent interviews said that “Umahi has the right to move to the APC, it’s his constitutional right, but we cannot in all cases allow Umahi blackmail PDP that made him chairman of the party, deputy governor, and governor and then you now realize there is an injustice against southeast.”

Furthermore, the Governor who dumped the PDP for the ruling All Progressives Congress on Thursday, said “People say PDP made me what I am. That is absolutely rubbish. We made PDP what PDP is,” he said.

“It is the people that make the party and I’ve contributed so much in the making of PDP not the other way around. I’ve been a peacemaker.

“I’ve been a negotiator and even the Governor of Edo State coming on board was my prophecy which my fellow Governor directed the working committee to come and probe me but that was a big minus for them because you don’t probe a sitting Governor.

“Another one is that the PDP wants me to be castigating Mr. President. I have no other boss apart from Mr. President. And by my culture and upbringing you do not insult the elders. It’s not in my character.
